You got the time frame about right, looks like a UO8.
Fairly heavy but very well regarded vintage ride, I love the bottle and cage!
Mafacs are awesome brakes, the Simplex DR's could be replaced with no worries as they are prone to failure, Steel wheels could be replaced with alloy for a nice weight reduction and improvement in braking.
If you're looking for a value it's tough because it's very dependent on your market, even though UO8s are widely appreciated for a great ride there were LOTS of them built and so they are fairly common.
